The folks of Crackberry.com started an interesting collection of BlackBerry concepts and the first one that impressed them was the one created by John Anastasiadis. Meet the 2012 BlackBerry concept with a wraparound display and asymmetrical design, that looks stunning. I tell you, the iPhone 4S and Nokia N9 don’t have anything on this beauty…

The designer of this device is both a BlackBerry fan and industrial design passionate with an MBA, so he put his skills to good work. As I said, this BlackBerry design includes a wrap around display, that incorporates the soft keys on the underside for gaming, navigation and other purposes. Being an asymmetrical device, this unit lets you know which side is the best to hold without looking at the phone. There’s a hard button incorporated, one that’s used to lock the screen, take pictures and more.

An interesting aspect is the artificial intelligence on this model, that predicts the user’s intention for a command. I can see that Chrome is also on board, as well as Facebook and a multitasking system that reminds me of QNX OS. The front and back cameras are hidden behind the display, that will also serve as the flash by illuminating. How cool is that? This has got to be the best BlackBerry design I’ve seen in years…
